SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS The hardware and software requirements for Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal are the following: Platform: X86 or x86-64 platform with Intel VT-x or AMD-V hardware virtualization support. CPU: 1.5 GHz or higher processor (a 64-bit processor is required for launching 64-bit guest operating systems). Memory: 2 GB of RAM (4 GB recommended). Hard disk space: 3 GB of free disk space. 30 GB of free disk space for each virtual machine. Network: Ethernet network adapter. Valid IP address.

4 Other hardware: DVD-ROM drive. Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal is distributed as a DVD image; so, your server must have a DVD-ROM drive to start the installation. Operating system: Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal is installed directly on the server hardware and does not need any operating system for its functioning. The actual number of virtual machines you can run on a physical server and their performance depend on the resources they require. In general, the more resources your physical server has, the more virtual machines you can run and the higher is the performance of each virtual machine. 4.

STARTING TO WORK IN PARALLELS SERVER 4 BARE METAL After you successfully install the product and restart the physical server, you will be provided with the instructions on how to start working in Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal. In general, you have two possibilities to work with Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal: Using Parallels command line utilities Parallels Management Console

6 PARALLELS COMMAND LINE UTILITIES Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal provides a set of utilities that allow you to manage Parallels virtual machines and Containers both locally and remotely. Connecting to Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal Locally To manage your virtual machines and Containers locally, i.e. from the same server where Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal is installed, do the following: a Press ALT+F1 on your server's screen to open a terminal window. b Type root as the user name and the password you provided when installing the product. After you have successfully logged in to the server, you can start creating and managing your Parallels virtual machines and Containers using the following command line utilities: * pctl: use this utility to perform day-to-day operations on your Containers and virtual machines. * pmigrate: use this utility to perform different types of migration on servers running Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal. * pstat: use this utility to collect statistics on your virtual machines and Containers. For more information on these utilities, see their man pages. Connecting to Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal Remotely To connect to Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal remotely, use the IP address that is indicated on your server's screen. For example, you can use a Secure Shell client to connect to your physical server. When logging in to the server, use the root user name and the password you provided when installing the product. PARALLELS MANAGEMENT CONSOLE If you prefer working with GUI tools, you can set up Parallels Management Console to remotely connect to Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal. However, this tool is intended for managing Parallels virtual machines only. So, if you need to create a Container or perform any operation on it, you should use the corresponding Parallels command line utilities. To set up Parallels Management Console: a Make sure that the computer where you are going to install Parallels Management Console meets the necessary system requirements. b Download the Parallels Management Console installation file: * Open your favorite browser and type the IP address of the server running Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal. * In the Welcome window, click the link corresponding to the system architecture where you want to install Parallels Management Console and download the installation file. c Install Parallels Management Console. d Launch Parallels Management Console and connect to the server with Parallels Management Console. For more information on these operations, refer to the Getting Started With Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal guide. 7. KNOWN ISSUES AND RESTRICTIONS The list of known issues for Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal is given below.

7 * Parallels Management Console may sometimes consume a significant amount of memory. To fix this problem, restart Parallels Management Console. * Parallels Server 4 Bare Metal installer may fail to detect the necessary drivers for some USB DVD-ROM drives. * A virtual machine may freeze sometimes when installing Windows Server 2003 over a network using a PXE (Preboot Execution Environment) server. * After migrating a virtual machine to another Parallels server, the prl_vm_app process may consume up to 100% CPU time. * The prl_disk_resize utility may work incorrectly with SUSE-based virtual disks. * Parallels Management Console installed on some rare Linux distributions may fail to show the virtual machine's screen. * A virtual machine may crash after executing the sysrq-p command on the Parallels server. * Running the pctl enter and pctl exec commands in virtual machines (especially in Windows-based virtual machines) may produce an incorrect output or no output at all. * Parallels Transporter does not support migrating LVM physical volumes based on whole disks. * Migrating Containers is supported from Hardware Nodes running Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.5 for Windows Hotfix 1 and higher. * Due to a known bug in the mainstream Linux kernel, the process of starting services inside virtual machines running Linux operating systems may hang on launching the udev service. The problem was fixed in the kernel. To work around this problem in earlier kernel versions, set the following kernel boot option: clock=(pmtmr acpi_pm) * Parallels Power Panel can manage Parallels virtual machines only if they are formatted as FAT32, NTFS, ext2, or ext3. * The Parallels Tools installation may not start automatically for virtual machines created by migrating physical servers or Containers. To work around this problem, start the Parallels Tools installation manually. * Migrating Containers running Windows Server 2008 to virtual machines is not supported. * Parallels Management Console installed on Mac OS X may not remember server connection passwords even if you ask it to do so. * The Parallels Tools installation may not start automatically if you are creating a virtual machine with Windows Vista and select the Express Windows Installation mode during the installation. To work around this problem, start the Parallels Tools installation manually. * Running guest operating systems with the Xen kernel inside virtual machines is not supported. * Creating split virtual disks greater than 1.8 TB may fail. * Migrating a virtual machine between Parallels servers may fail if the virtual machine has one or more CD/DVD-ROM drives connected to the client computer. To work around this problem, disable all CD/DVD-ROM drives connected to the client computer before starting the migration: 1. Open Virtual Machine Configuration.

8 2. Under Hardware, click the name of the CD/DVD-ROM drive to be disabled. 3. Clear the Enabled check box, and click OK. * Running the 'time sleep' command with the same value in different virtual machines may take a different amount of time. * Starting a 'CentOS 5.3 x64'-based virtual machine the first time after installing Parallels Tools in it may take a rather long run. * Copying/pasting text to/from a virtual machine using Parallels Management Console on a Linux computer may not work. * When switching a virtual machine to the full screen mode, its screen resolution may change even if the "Keep the virtual machine's screen resolution in full screen" option is enabled in the virtual machine configuration. * Backing up a virtual machine to a mounted USB drive may fail. * Hibernating a virtual machine running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 may fail. As an alternative to hibernating a virtual machine, you can suspend it instead. 8. COPYRIGHT NOTICE Copyright by Parallels Holdings, Ltd. All rights reserved.
